While thousands flocked to Foley Square in Manhattan Tuesday to protest the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade draft ruling, a group of Sunnyside residents went to Lou Lodati Park to let their feelings be known that they disagree with the likely decision.
Council Member Julie Won organized a last-minute rally at the park for residents who were unable to attend the Foley Square rally but wanted to protest the likely ruling and make it clear that they support a women’s right to choose. About 30 Sunnysiders attended.
The rally was in response to a draft Supreme Court decision that was leaked to Politico Monday night that would overrule Roe v. Wade. The ruling would essentially mean that state legislatures would determine abortion rights. Approximately half the states in the nation— primarily in the South and Midwest– would restrict such rights.
“The women who will bear the consequences of Roe v. Wade being overturned will be working class women, especially BIPOC women who won’t be able to travel across state lines to receive care,” Won said. “What is argued to be a life saving measure will lead to many lives lost and health risks due to desperation.”
Won, who recently had her first baby, said that she is now more pro-choice than ever.
“It is not because I don’t love my baby or love being a mom, but because what women go through to give birth, vaginal or c-section, is so traumatic and invasive; women deserve to choose to go through it. Every woman should have access to have a healthy, safe delivery or abortion.”
Won’s event was one of many that are to taking place across the borough.
A large rally is scheduled at Queens Borough Hall on Thursday at 6 p.m. that is being organized by borough president Donovan Richards.
“Queens will always unquestionably stand up for the reproductive rights of all people. Abortion is health care, and not only is it a fundamental human right, it is often life-saving,” Richards said.
Another thing that she does that i don’t care about. How about cleaning up this filthy neighborhood?
Half of the people there are little kids plus a dog.
What a fraud. Do something concrete. Nothing will come of your demonstration.
I’m pro government not getting in my business. Do whatever you want, it’s your body, not mine BUT… Using kids to push an agenda is not really cool in my book. Idk if they fully understand what they are being used for.
More people will show up if you like offer free hats , a t shirt or like free coffee and donut.
No. Most people have better things to do than attend a rally they don’t support.
Cause the BLM screamers don’t actually act like their fellow lives matter.
Just saying. No such term as (anything else) on (anything else) crime…
Should of took place on the weekend when people are not working from home. Our district is more diverse than that.
The diverse people are actually pro-life not like these hipsters
I have an idea
How about a vigil for the dead babies or for the women who regret their abortions?
Problem- Nobody is stopping you. Put it together.
Julie Won is the best.
Who is she to hold a pro choice rally? She just had a baby!!
You can still be pro choice and CHOOSE LIFE!!!
A baby that she CHOSE to have. Keep thinking, you’re almost there…
Now that men can get pregnant too according to transgender ideology, can they have a say in the matter?
Men can get pregnant? I don’t think you really understand what “gender” means…
The most hilarious thing about liberals is they run away from their own wacky beliefs when their inherent absurdity is pointed out. That is inevitably followed by the ad hominen attacks they confuse for rational debate. Cognitive dissonance is rife among left wingers.
Women can become men and vice versa? I don’t think you know what gender means.
But Biden told me there are 27 genders
He’s right. Trans-men are considered men. It’s why you have a pregnant man emoji on most phones.
Thank you for agreeing with me, HUGE difference in gender identity and male/female sexual anatomy. Proponents of equal rights don’t believe that people born as the female sex can get pregnant, regardless of gender.
The fact that you had NO idea about this explains a lot!
